Last night I participated in my very first twitter party. It was a #RedCarpetCat Twitter party coming LIVE from Hollywood from 5:30 – 7:00 pm (PST) put on by Event Barkers.
Gracey, The Tiniest Tiger from the Conservation Cub Club took to the red carpet for a special event leading up to the Oscars. She was promoting her brand-new The Tiniest Tiger Hipster Bag filled with goodies from various generous sponsors. Gracey tweeted photos of herself on the red carpet and gave away prizes every 10 minutes! Jackson Galaxy, star of Animal Planet’s “My Cat From Hell”, was also tweeting live from the party.
Over 300 people RSVP’d for the event, and let me tell you, it was exhausting trying to keep up with all of the tweets! It was fun trying to answer all of the trivia questions and I was so excited I was to win the Grand Prize – woo hoo! (That was exactly 30 minutes after my hubby rolled his eyes at me for being on a twitter party and went downstairs to watch hockey.) I won a Tiniest Tiger Hipster Bag filled with swag! Not only does this very cool bag hold an iPad, it has a cat pattern quilted into it. I have been looking everywhere for a cute cross body bag and now I can’t wait to receive it!
Since I was new to twitter partying, I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but it was nice to make some new friends. The 90 minutes flew by and I saw many of my favorite cat bloggers tweeting: The Conscious Cat, Cat Lady Land, Your Daily Cute, Modern Cat, I Have Cat, Covered in Cat Hair, Pet Blogs United, Romeo the Cat, and Blog Paws!
If you are looking for a great way to reach a bigger audience to promote a product, or a book, or your blog – take a peek at Event Barkers and think about having a twitter party! Oh – and don’t forget to invite me – I LOVE to win stuff!!!
